Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

what type of surgery did you have?

are you able to drink water now?

if you can't drink water, you may have to go back to the ER

you could have a blockage in your esophagus.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No I can't drink right now and the time I had this i think I did have something blocking my esophagus
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

you be having something else blocking your esophagus again

you may need to see a GI doctor to have an upper endoscopy scope down into your esophagus to break up the blockage.

you may need dilations of your esophagus to widen the bath for food to travel

you may need to do a better job of chewing your food before you swallow.
